The HTC One V with its 1GHz single-core processor, 3.7-inch display, Beats Audio enhancement, 5-megapixel camera, and elegant 10-millimeter body is still new to the Smartphone market and although it will never revolutionize the Smartphone industry, you can be confident that with a price tag of only $370  you defiantly get your monies worth.

And as with many new devices on the market, it’s not generally long before software developers get their hands on it and start porting its software through devices that are similar and that are running the same OEM. Well a talented developer over at XDA-Developers known as proxuser, has managed to port the new HTC One V’s ROM across to the HTC Desire  S/HD. It isn’t yet in optimum condition and there are some obvious bugs in the ROM, but it shouldn’t be too long before these are ironed out with the input from input and feedback from other developers and users.

Currently, it seems that USB Tethering, WiFi hotspots, and the camera don’t appear to be working, however, if this doesn’t phase you too much then you can use the guide below.

As with any tutorial, we advise you to proceed at your own risk and ensure you backup your device first. ConsumingTech will not be responsible for damage to your device or any loss of data.
